Gratitude Amid Uncertainty – Happy Thanksgiving!

21 November 2023

There’s a lot of suffering in the world at large today, conflict, uncertainty. Whether it’s Israelis, Palestinians, Ukrainians, the world has become a scary place for so many people at present. And every single one of them is a real person. They have parents, spouses, children, homes, jobs, and all this can be disrupted at any moment.

Let’s remember, this Thanksgiving, to be grateful we are not, in the U.S., in the middle of a civil war.

And let’s not fight with one another – there’s too much fighting in our world as it is.

Rather, let’s be thankful for all the good things in our lives, our families, our friends, our work – and of course the wonderful feast I know you are looking forward to as much as I am.

Let’s make this a time of peace and kindness – let’s mend fences where we can, even with the difficult people. I am not saying you must make them a fixture in your home, as that can become a minefield of stress, but maybe make peace between you.

A little humility, a little humanity, a little empathy – these can go a long way.

And you’ll feel all the better for it.

On an end note, as a level one sommelier, if you are planning to serve wine with your feast, I would recommend a Beaujolais – it’s tasty, fruity, effervescent, goes wonderfully with turkey, and is reasonably priced.

What are your plans this Thanksgiving? Please click here to email me directly – I would love to hear from you.

Until next week –
